  1. My wifes grandmother has a single peach tree in her yard, not sure if it was a pit that grew from seed or if planted but its young(less than 10 years old) and put on a ton of fruit every year. Would do better if she listen to me about pruning it properly.
  2. Had a young bear behind my house the other night. My daughter got to see it, for the first time and she was in awe.
  3. I pick fruit trees that will drop fruits when i want deer to eat them to aid in hunting opportunities. Mostly late dropping fruit. Theres a member here that grafts custom trees to drop at many times of the season. I planted a few December dropping pears 3 years ago that were about 3' tall and today are about 12-15' tall. Also have some late dropping crab apples that grow well but the deer are really fighting to get at all my young fruit trees in the winter. I like my trees dropping at different times of season and especially some late season droppings for herd health..
  4. Dude, I was looking into those well. How compact and simple it is, and your gun can still be used like a standard rfile.. It is really freakin cool. I was planning a visit to his shop soon, to put hands on one, but since I machined him a ton of stuff to sell at his store, per his request and a few favors on my end. I never even received a thank you or nothing.. so my opinions on him and his business are beginning to change. Same with the guy who he has as a "field/pro staffer" lol. The idea of the clip on is simply bad a$$
  5. Dang, ive been eye balling the hogster lineup since March. And ive collected several of your belongings over the years lol. Whats your next move?
  6. ITs going to be a good mix of grasses, taller weeds, gulden rod ragweed etc.. and the occasional saplings and brush as well. I also have an electronic PTO clutch and a flail would be easier at startups. I can fit a flail attached to my tractor on my current trailer setup. a bhog would require a bigger trailer purchase too
  7. Awesome, thats exactly what i want it for, and the occasional perennial plot maintenance. But i have some over grown fields i would like managed. And the ease of trailering comes in hand. as well as my Electronic PTO clutch. Seems it would be easier on the machine to me. Thank you
  8. I concidered one as well, But the majority of what i will be cutting is golden rod, ragweed, pigweeds and lamb quarter etc a swell as grasses and perennial plots. I can always customize the blade setup to make it more of a brush cutter as well.. Than kyou
  9. The Flail mower with hammer blades should cut up to 3" shrubs and trees. So another reason Im leaning toward the Flail mower as it will fit on my current trailer where the hog wont. Also I have an electronic clutch pto so the flail will also engage easier like a rotary tiller, where the brush hog bangs hard upon engaging, and requires higher rpm startup. Probably should have mentioned that before hand lol I would like both at some point
  10. We have about 10 of them. They work well for the price point. they are an entry level cell cam. Ive had them last 6 months, and last several years and still working. Not sure If you purchase one, as long as you dont expect the quality of an expensive camera.. you will be pleased. We are transitioning ours out, and moving into Tactacams and exodus cell cams.
  11. Anyone use a 3pt Flail mower? Will be purchasing one or the other soon. I like the idea of the flail mower being able to cut 6" heights as well as right down to the dirt with the use of hammer blades rather than "Y" blades.. The price of new well built rotary mowers (brush hogs) is not much less than a 3pt flail mower.. They're also are smaller in size making access and trailer usage easier. Really leaning towards a flail over the brush hog.. Anybody have some first hand info? It would be used on a sub compact 28hp diesel 22 PTO hp.. so a 48" or 52" flail vs 48" brush hog..
  12. None of those plants in the plot were mature and shouldn't have viable seed, so the chance they carry over and reseed is very slim. But the lawn is full of clovers, dandelions and different types of grasses. I don't mind anymore. I used to be anal about my lawn and not let the kids ride in it, but I've given up on that. I wanna be the cool dad, so I let my kids tear the hell out of it with there Go karts dirt bikes and 4 wheelers lol just no ruts is all i ask.. My wife even goes out there and tears it up with the kids lol. I did it more for test to see how my "X" blade system would work from field to lawn lol
  13. Folder, MAny times a folded up piece of pleasure paper can be used a second time.. as many times they arent the most solid types of messes! lol
  14. Yep, turn them down. If you feel your setup is not "good enough" lowering bow poundage down and beefing up your arrow setup will achieve the same results or even better results.
  15. Id say hes a standard 1.5 yr old. You Can tell better from a side profile but, as far as headgear, hes at a typical 1.5 yr old growth rate..
  16. Happy Birthday Brian! I hope its a blessed day for you
  17. It seems most Toms have gone silent the last few years. The years of very plentiful birds have gone by us.. Without some state and landowner help the population is only going to get worse. Good Habitat is becoming non existent, Young Turkeys and young deer require different needs for survival. Most land owners work their property for better deer growing and hunting, and turkey hunting .. but not growing and raising turkey.. once a turkey makes it through winter #1 they can live and adapt (within reason). But they also have avian predators, ground predators and nest predators as well as hunting pressure and weather pressure in terms of possible wet bad springs for a young successful hatch. Turkeys have it the worst out of all game critters.. and receive zero help other than the selective sportsman or woman..
  18. Love it, nice work sir! Food plots are fun and addicting.. lol
  19. The annual clovers have taken off well. Three of the best nitrogen and tonnage producing clovers building soil for the fall crops.. and feeding wildlife galore! Turkeys and deer in it all day and night. 3ft tall in most spots. The balansa will get 6ft tall or long i should say lol since it doesnt have a stalk Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Winter peas and Radish will do good there! If you can throw in a Purple Top Turnip with it too! IT will be a great fall and Winter plot. The shot plot mixes make pretty good hidey hole "kill plot" style plots.! Cant wait to see more pics! You can always frost seed every plot every year. The clover will by early summer start pumping nitrogen into your soil for you. Will also be first green up in April and be a good turkey plot too! All wildlife will be in early green clover plots
  21. Sad part of planting annuals is they have a life cycle. If planted too early they mature and or Bolt.. and become non preferred when you want them to be preferred... Sorry my apologies, I didnt realize you cant spray. If thats the case, the best way to control weeds is disking a couple times, like once ten wait 10-14 days and disk again prep seed bed and plant same day. Once your soil is prepared seed must go on it right after, and hopefully you can time it right with rain coming very soon. Not letting the present weed seeds in the soil to germinate before your seeds can. Do you know what you are planting?
  22. Not to be one of those guys but, Why limit us to only one option of power? That sounds like a recipe for failure to me.. Your mining materials to "Make" batteries.. I hear the mining operation is quite the process. When piping oil.. you "break down" the petroleum and in short terms have gasoline.. Why not just have the "option" to utilize EV and or gas / diesel products? OR is there more to it? When the people of power push towards a mono supply of power, literally only 1 type of energy available, for EVERYTHING, that is certainly a setup for disaster, or is it the plan for a desired result?... Where's the back up plan if this fails (which it will) not sure how you can store that much Electric power when storms roll through and ruin plans. Im not against EV, but like the vaccine, its being forced upon.. which is wrong. Is it really for future environmental purposes? Is it for controlling purposes and controlling power grids across the country? The power that everything we will own in 15 years will run on? Sounds like a bag of trash to me! What do we do when storms shut electricity down for hours, days, weeks etc... There is no way you can store that much electricity to power vehicles, to power communities(since that's the direction this state is heading) when the power goes out.. not when EVERYTHING is Electricity dependent.. What about the rets of the world? Isn't there countries that don't even have Catalytic converters on their engines? and more, I get it, we cant control other countries.. Yea sure id imagine they are a smaller population.. but each scenario holds different weight upon terms of pollution. Compare the operation it takes to extract these minerals and petroleum's to make our current and future powers, then compare everything to the end product of refilling or recharging.. or replacing, The entire process. From very beginning to very end.. What if EV totally fails? Or The entire electric power grid for our homes and communities fails? Factories, cities, Supply Stations etc.. I need answers also.. Bc Im not being forced into anything without pure facts first.. This doesn't sound like a direction we should be heading, or even considering in times like this.. Get this country squared around and then experiment and offer options, not enforcing agendas.. The people in power should be concerned for American Citizen Morale, ease of life, our futures, our children and grand children.. And they clearly are not concerned for any of that. Every day people are stretched thinner and thinner, having to work more, pick up extra jobs, wonder where there 401k went, cant save the same, If The president is truly for the American people, he would make sure we felt safer at home, we didn't have to wake up and worry.. supposed to be easier to live.. This is America.. Sorry Rant over, you got me heated up for a moment
